When you switch to Energy Locals, you'll go onto the equivalent tariff for your current meter configuration (Anytime/Peak Only, Time of Use etc).
If you'd like to change your tariff type, let us know and we'll send the request to your local network company. The network company will only accept requests after you've transferred to Energy Locals. Please note that some networks are preventing customers from moving from time or demand-based tariffs back to simple ones (eg anytime/flat rate ones). An example of this is Ausgrid, where it's not normally possible to move from a time of use plan to a flat rate anytime plan.
We've heard that retailers will often keep customers on tariffs that cost a lot and make a lot of money for the retailer. At Energy Locals our incentives are aligned with our customers as we make no money from units of energy or from trading in the market.
